Given heightened hostility, violence, and threats to whole groups of people living in the United States, as well as escalating violence toward at-risk communities around the world – such as Syrian refugees or the Rohingya Muslim minority in Burma – right now is the time for us to come together, in new and innovative ways, in support of human rights.
This Justice Sunday, we are asking you to join with us in support of marginalized communities targeted because of who they are: people under particular threat because of religion, race, and immigrant or refugee status.
By partnering with local organizations and leveraging our state, national, and international networks, UUSC is protecting human rights in threatened communities. We do so by prioritizing the needs, voices, and leadership of the communities themselves.
Our launch date for this year’s Justice Sunday is March 26. We invite you and your congregation to participate anytime this spring. In the meantime, you can learn more about UUSC’s Rights at Risk work and how you can help protect communities under siege here.
Contributions to this year’s Justice Sunday program are restricted to UUSC’s Rights at Risk program, in support of at risk communities facing human rights and social justice abuses at the hands of their own governments. Your contribution will support communities targeted by harmful policies of the U.S. administration, the Rohingya people living on the brink of genocide in Western Burma, and refugees around the world.
WHAT IS JUSTICE SUNDAY?
Justice Sunday is UUSC’s annual program to engage you and your congregation in reflection and specific action tied to one of our three core program areas: Economic Justice, Rights at Risk, and Environmental Justice and Climate Action.
One day focused around a program and an action, Justice Sunday complements and continues our Guest at Your Table congregational program, which offers a broader look at UUSC’s mission and programs.
